FAI - Villa e Collezione Panza, Varese
(4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Set in a massive estate, FAI - Villa e Collezione Panza represents an attractive villa now home to the Saatchi Gallery. The villa went through a number of owners over several centuries before being donated by Giuseppe Panza to the National Trust of Italy. Panza was an avid art collector and the gallery displays his personal collection of American art, including artists like Phil Sims, David Simson, Ruth Ann Fredenthal, Stuart Arends, and Max Cole, among others. Enjoy the contemporary art, as well as the contrasting setting--the villa and the surrounding gardens date back to the 18th century.

  • I am a member of the FAi and I had heard about this museum. I visited just a few days ago in a beautiful and cold sunny day. The villa, immersed in an environment equally worthy of consideration, is charming but the collection (especially the permanent). You wouldn't expect a similar arrangement in a provincial town. Alone is worth the trip to Varese.

  • Thanks to the free tickets we had the chance to visit this beautiful mansion in which we knew little or nothing. The structure is magnificent, held at large both internally and externally, unfortunately the day was beautiful and we could make little of the splendid Park. the works housed in the villa are very interesting, especially the light installations on the first floor and the work contained in the old stables area. The staff is friendly and helped us in moving the stroller, and was amenable to explain the works and show us those small details that we would definitely have escaped. A villa to admire and visit definitely thanking the work of FAI

  • The Villa (with gardens) is beautiful corridor of light transports you to a world almost spellbound! Also the video portraits exhibit now on display is astounding! Then everyone is extremely friendly and courteous! Go for it you will not regret it.

  • Paid around 30 Eur for a familt ticket and saw a few rooms filled with color LEDs. I know I am not so art aware, but this was really frustrating. Sorry. Well, go there if you like gardens or nice old buildings.
  • Worth seeing. Very beautiful! they often have exhibitions inside.
  • Bella davvero ne vale la pena..
  • Soo beautiful
  • The FAI is always a guarantee. Beautiful exterior and grounds. Too bad the Interior stripped of furnishings
